A reader wrote in and asked, "I'm a thirteen year old girl and I picked up skateboarding a few months ago. I don't really think I'm going to get far if I don't ever go to a skatepark. Well, there is a problem with that. I am deathly afraid of skateparks. I am deathly afraid of people. Do you really have to go to a skatepark? I mean it would be kinda weird to never know how to roll down a ramp and that's why I am stressing about it. Any advice?"
Interesting situation! The short answer is "nope", but there's a lot more to that, isn't there? So, I wrote up a new FAQ, Do I HAVE to Skate at Skateparks to Be a Skater? Take a look, and if you have any ideas to add to this, please comment below!
This also go me thinking, I wonder how much you guys skate at skateparks, versus street or longboarding or who knows what else? So, here's a new poll! Vote! Do it! You know you want to!
